Here’s a sneak peak at the cover art for my new short story collection FOR THE LOVE OF HORROR, due out soon by NECON EBooks. Kelli Jones designed the cool cover featuring two wine glasses containing a little more than just wine.
FOR THE LOVE OF HORROR is my first short story collection, featuring stories written and published prior to 2004. It’s a collection of short stories and a wraparound story that ties all the tales together.
It’s a love story, as the two main characters are involved with each other, but the characters in these stories constantly make bad decisions and act in ways that are contrary to developing solid, lasting relationships. What’s the theme here? If you want to have a successful relationship, you don’t want to act like the folks in this book. This is a collection of tales that describe relationship failures. It’s an anti-love story. Yet, like the rest of the world, the people in these stories are involved in relationships. They have no choice. It’s what people do. They just don’t have a clue how to do it. Well, most of them anyway.
FOR THE LOVE OF HORROR describes relationships that are as ugly as your most grotesque horror story. It’s not for everyone.
TWILIGHT, it ain’t.
FOR THE LOVE OF HORROR will be out shortly by NECON EBooks, available soon at www.neconebooks.com.
